    Answers a question I had on what to do with some reloaded ammunition I have with commercial JHPs.
    Factory opening is minimal. Have a bunch of small center drills. You provided a solution. Thanks.

    i left out that the drill bit is from the lyman flash hole de-burring tool.ou can use the RCBS or other flash hole de-burring tool.

    As a follow on to this 25acp discussion, I contacted kywoodwrkr, and asked him for an address to return his development dial plate and pin set. He said to hold onto them. He was going to revisit that project another time.
    So, I have his development plate and pin set that I would offer up to anyone wishing to complete that project for the 25 acp. I don't have any machining ability here, so the parts in progress aren't doing me much good.
    If you are reloading for 25 acp, and would like to work on this for your Dillon 550b, please send me a pm, and I'll work with you to get the parts sent along to the next person.

    Rick459,
    Have you weighed a Unmodified factory round and compared your Hollow Pointed one's weight to it? I am curious how much weight "Loss" is involved in the Drilling.

    Best Regards,
    Chev. William

    Ditto. I have two in 22LR as they're just fun to carry for knocking around the woods.
